When we bought this place the Mr. and I struck a deal. Being a former landscaper and a gardening nut I decreed the yard to be MINE. The Mr. agreed, on the condition the garage was his. No problem, all your's I said.
Six years later I decided enough was enough. While the yard looks amazing, the garage looks like a tornado went through it. A mad, drunken one. Part of the problem is there's no shelving and stuff is just all over the floor, but the garage itself was just gross. Stained, dirty walls, cobwebs everywhere, dead flies in the window. Ugh.
Armed with a gallon of grey primer, two small pallets, and 5 wall studs I went to work.
The shelves are made using these small pallets ripped in half, to form a 12" deep shelf. They'll span 8 ft long and go 5 levels high. Eventually it'll wrap around the entire garage, the top tier going just above the garage doors.
The Mr. gets these little pallets from his work and I only had two. I'll need 6 more to finish this out plus three more wall studs, but so far so good. I didn't think to take photos sooner or you'd see there's a short 2x4 on the right end there that screws to the wall and the shelves slip over it to stabilize on that far end.
It's a start, hopefully he'll score the 3 more pallets this month and I can finish this wall out. If I had a pantry I'd so build these in it! :)
